enjoy the music. the preceding has been a paid advertisement for time life's music collection. words alone aren't enough. our job is to listen and find ways to help workers who lost their jobs to the spill. i'm iris cross.
7:45pm
we'll keep restoring the jobs, tourist beaches, and businesses impacted by the spill. we've paid over $400 million in claims and set up a $20 billion independently-run claims fund. i was born in new orleans. my family still lives here. i'm gonna be here until we make this right. obama in the 2008 election. now they appear to be changing their tune. the respected pollster conducted a poll of independent voters which found that independents are now tilting
7:46pm
towards the gop. 50% republican, 25% democrat. the same poll says that 48% of independen48% of independent voters view the tea party positively. the wall street journal and los angeles times and political among others reported on the poll, which was under written by the independent women's voice, a sister organization of the independent women's forum. >> did i get that right, michelle? >> you got that right. the voice is the sister organization to the forum. and you are ahead of the t -- c we have independents? let me tell you why. i will tell you what our poll told us. 1,000 likely voters have told us that whether you look at democrats or republicans, this is the beauty contest and all of the contestants are ugly. they don't like democrats. they don't like republicans. and for that reason, people are unaffiliated. they are leaning republicans. >> let me finish. >> they are leaning
7:47pm
republicans despite they don't like republicans. >> 60/40? >> they are leaning republicans because they feel the democratic party -- it is over 50%. >> every independent, former republican or former democrat. scott brown one because all those former democrats were sick of their party and our guys are winning because they are sick of the democratic party. they were sick of the republicans in 2008. this rise of the independence is a vote against both national parties. >> absolutely. >> both of which failed the country in that they can't balance our budget, win or wars or secure our borders. >> the biggest block of voters in the country and obama won then in 2008 and now they are leaning republican. >> why have they turned against obama? >> because they are mostly angry at the party in power, but they don't like the republicans. so the challenge for obama and democrats is to make this --
7:48pm
they don't like bailout. they would like bailout if it were for them. >> the stimulous package? >> no, they don't want any of the government programs. >> they don't like the stimulous package. they are against all of it. >> they are against the healthcare program that was passed by incredible numbers. they are basically -- >> why? >> because they think it's going to raise the cost of healthcare. >> it abliges you to haindivid >> libertarians are against that. >> the position is that what independents are telling us is that they want to make their own decisions. they don't want government making decisions for them. >> healthcare. >> the question on whether the insurance companies make your decisions on many of the benefits have gone into effect this week. you can't get kicked off of
7:49pm
your healthcare plan. >> anything about deficit spending and the impact of that and particularly on your voting strength. >> because i'm recalling all the time you made that an issue when george w. bush was in power. i don't remember it coming up, john. >> every other weekend, didn't i? >> 0 to 10, meaning no likelihood whatsoever. 10 meaning physical certitude. what is the likelihood that the democrats will win back the majority of independents? favoring republicans by election day. >> minus 473 degrees, which is absolute zero. they aren't going to get back the independents. it's ridiculous. >> i don't think we'll get back the majority. we live in a political climate. i'm going to give them a 3. >> zero. it's not happening. at least not by november. >> really? >> zero. >> certainly not happening by november. if anything, it's going to get worse between now and the election. will say one. ruel of a figure.
7:50pm
issue three, pentagon featherbedding. >> we spend too much on national defense. nearly $700 billion. that's what secretary of defense, robert gates believes and says. he wants to slash $100 billion from the defense budget over five years. the current defense budget is almost 1/5 of the total u.s. budget and the total u.s. budget is $3.5 trillion. >> the culture of endless money that has taken hold must be replaced by a culture of savings and restraint. >> secretary gates is practicing what he preaches. he said that last year the department made more than 30 tough choices. canceling or curtailing major weapon system that were performing poorly or in excess to real world needs. about $330 billion worth. besides hardware heavy, the
7:51pm
pentagon is also personnel heavy. what gates calls grass creep. generals and admirals, nearly 1,000 of them. deputy assistance secretaries of defense, 530. in 1960, there were 78. as for musicians in the military, there are more u.s. military ban members than our 6,000 foreign service offices. chairman of the joint chief of staff concurs with secretary gates on cutbacks. >> one of the things that secretary gates is addressing and i think rightfully so is the whole issue of what he calls brass creed. i think that is something we need to look at, not just on the military side. there's vilian part of the creep which occurred as well. >> question, why are mullen and gates singing the praises of frugality? i ask you mort. >> yes, i was on the defense
7:52pm
administration board. we looked at the management board. >> under ru feld? >> the politics are difficult because every base, extra base, we make our own glasses. >> you mean the states phi in? >> the congressman and senator. you can't afford it. there are extra military equipment that we don't need that is forced upon us by the states where they manufacture it. >> so congress is clawing at the budget of pentagon. >> absolutely. >> john, you know where you get the money? >> you have 701 ,000 foreign bases. american troops are going to start coming home from korea and northern europe and quite frankly because we can't afford it and the other cost is these two wars we've got going. and eventually, this whole thing has come down. >> the iraq war is winding down. secondly, afghanistan has a terminal date on it. this flows into a patent with
7:53pm
no time to do it. >> i think they ought to do it. >> the money that fuels the empire is not coming down. secretary gates has taken some bold stands here, trying to chip away at the gold plated military culture and some of these weapon systems that have -- are very expensive and have no relation to modern warfare, but dwight eisenhower that had credibility than the defense secretary. eisenhower couldn't tame the military in the mclaughlin group is
